This all started when deciding to upgrade my CPU. It snowballed quickly into me building another computer entirely! Having recently moved just outside of Philadelphia, I found myself less than an hours drive from not one, but TWO Microcenters. As anyone knows, it is very difficult to walk in to one of those stores and not come out with a nearly full builds worth of stuff. Caught a few things in bundles and an open box deal that shaved over 100 bucks off the price listed on here. So far everything is running like a dream! Couldnt be happier with my first AMD build.

I'd put a "budget" gaming rig (tower only) at around £500-600. Difficult to call it budget with a 5700XT GPU over £350 and £70+ of RGB surplus. This is what I recently put together on a budget, with a decent upgrade path ahead of it.

Budget doesn't mean cheap it just means you have a certain amount of money that you can't go over.
